There are predators and prey in the popular game Fortnite. The former are the ones who hunt and kill the prey for sport, while the latter are those in hiding. If you want to be a predator in Fortnite, you need to learn how to stalk your prey, hide from enemies, and take them down quickly and efficiently. In short, you need to be patient and observant, and when you see an opportunity, strike! Be swift and deadly. However, our guide focuses on Predator, a character from the American movie franchise, that you can be in Fortnite.
Note. The Predator challenge, named “The Hunt” is no longer active. However, we’re demonstrating the process in case Epic Games decides to invoke the partnership and bring the event to life again. That wouldn’t be the first one they revived for players that missed their chance.
1. Start “The Hunt” Event to Be a Predator in Fortnite
If you have a question about how to be Predator in Fortnite, you need to complete a challenge. The challenge is called “The Hunt.” You can start it alone, but know it will be difficult unless you’re at the top of your game, with quick reflexes, lots of weapons, and full health. Thus, we propose starting it as a squad. You will need to talk to 3 NPCs: Dummy, Remedy, and Beef Boss. The first is at the Durr Burger food truck or restaurant. The other two are nearby: close to the food truck, inside a home, and close to Pleasant Park. Then, collect 3 health packs on the map.
2. Visit Stealthy Stronghold
When Predator is there, you can find it in Stealthy Stronghold, a lighthouse surrounded by tall walls on all sides. It is to the east of Coral Castle and north of Pleasant Park, i.e., in the top left corner of the Fortnite map. Do note that Predator roams, so it can be at any part of the stronghold. His ship is in the northeastern portion, so you can start there.
3. Discover Predator
Not only is Predator powerful, but also sneaky. He uses a cloaking spell that only leaves a faint outline of his body. Only when you approach and catch him at the right moment does he turn his cloak off and attack. You can also keep the music turned on, and listen for a difference, indicating his appearance. It will run to a different section of the stronghold once uncovered.
4. Use the Right Weapons to Kill Predator
Predator has a lot of health and dangerous clawing attacks. Hence, the best weapons to use are sniper rifles, shotguns, and any quick-firing ones. The first will allow you to take down your prey from a distance if another person triggered it. If you are using a shotgun, get up close and personal with your target. Shotguns are most effective at close range. You can find these rifles in supply drops or by looting buildings. In both cases, your goal is to chase him down (he’s faster and runs higher than players) and deal lots of damage while avoiding his lethal close-range attacks.
5. Be Patient and Attack Predator in Fortnite Quickly
The most important way to become Predator is to be patient. You need the right opportunity to strike since the player that deals the killing blow gets the Predator skin. Thus, You must be calm and observant. When you see an opportunity, take it! Be quick and be deadly. It would help if you looked for patterns in how Predator moves and behaves. To ease your worry, we propose attacking as a squad. If you do so, regardless of who in the group kills Predator, everyone gets the skin.
6. Enjoy your Predator Skin
The Predator gives you a new look and a new set of abilities to help you take down your prey. With the Predator skin, you will be able to see players through walls, climb trees, and set traps. You can also use a special vision mode that allows you to see players through the smoke. The Predator skin is a powerful tool that can help you become a top player in Fortnite.
